I see I've managed to miss the first two episodes but I've been to view them on the following website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/torchwood/

When you think original Torchwood was an anagram for Dr Who the new series and it's series of its own.  Looks really good.

Yeah it does look good.  Plif is recording it for me and will send me a disc of the first eps once they've aired.

That's good Angel.  Well the bbc are showing them on digital channel right now, so perhaps they will show them on Analog tv soon, then I can get to see the first two I missed.

You should check out that link though it's really interesting.  Now I know why Captain Jack never really died after the daleks killed him, hum I can't rememeber the name of the eppy off the top of my head, but you know what I'm talking about.  It's abit creepy too.  I'm getting scared in my old age, lol.

The beeb are showing them at 10pm, so I hope come sunday I don't forget it's on.

Those last couple of eps of season one were very lexxish, they reminded me of end of the universe with the 790 heads battling the mantrid drone arms for the universe.  Captain Jack was meant to live, so he could star in torchwood.  :P

Captain Jack was meant to live to give me some fresh eye candy in the fall... by the way, BBC 2 has Torchwood on at 9pm, or maybe 10pm... I get confused. I'd have missed the first two eps if I hadn't caught them there on Wednesday night! I'm loving that it is clearly more adult orientated, and that he's got that luffly 1940's lookin' coat back heh heh

Oh, useless info, Captain Jack copped it in The Parting of the Ways, and was resurrected by Rose when she was Bad Wolfing it, aka 'possessed' by the vortex, so he did really die, she just had the power to change that and did, bless her little cotton socks. I love that bit... aaaaaaah, right up until he looked like a smacked puppy when the TARDIS dematerialized without him... There has been talk that Captain Jack will be be making more appearances at the end of series 3 of the new run. I read it in the mag.

Behold, I am a repository for pointless information... ^_^

I watched eppy no4 last night Cyberwoman it was called.

Started off ok, in the middle got a bit wet but ended with sort of twist.  I've not made my mind up about this series yet.  Maybe after watching them all I might.

Cyberwoman?  So did she look at all like the Cybermen from Dr. Who?  Or was it sort of a take on that but with a different look?

No.  She was in between.  How can I say it without spoiling it for you and the rest that wish to see?

Just put it this way when I saw the trailer, I thought that's not  a true Cyberman as made differently.

I viewed the first two episodes on YouTube before they were pulled for "terms of use violations", and enjoyed them immensely. Probably won't get to see them here in the U.S., unless they air them on HBO or Showtime. The subject matter and language are probably too graphic for the good ol' heartland type folks.

Loved the Doctors hand in the jar!

I'm really enjoying Torchwood so far ^_^ I'm a little iffy about what they've done with Captain Jack, but other than that... he's the same guy I adored from Doctor Who mostly so its all good.

For the record... the hand in the jar creeps me out, I don't care who's hand it is! LOL

What did they do to Captain Jack??  He was very hot in the first new Dr. Who season, I hope they didn't change him drastically!

That was the bit I was trying to avoid telling LOL When he reveals that, I sat there going 'whatchu talkin' 'bout, Cap'n?' I think it is just that I'm not used to it yet... I got to know Captain Jack through Doctor Who, and now he's just kinda different...he's more serious and he's all about the job (on the surface anyway... da man be troubled), but after what he went through I'm not surprised. He's still got that wit, he just seems to use it at more appropriate times... which is kind of a shame in a way... I do so love the Captain of the Inuendo Squad. Still, all things considered, I'm loving the Captain as much as ever... and longing to steal his coat. What?! He knows a Time Lord, he can just go get another one... ~_^

Wow I've just recently watch episode no 7 'There's Something About Mary.' and it was really good.  Started off a bit creepy.  It's about this alien and this necklace when worn you can read people's mind.  That's all I'll say.

When I saw the trailer to it last week, I thought it did not look all that interesting but I was wrong.

I've just seen the first three episodes of Torchwood with three more to go (and am finally getting to 'round to making my teacakes, otherwise I'd be having me a marathon of eps).  It's way different than I thought it would be, I was thinking it'd be a bit more futuristic, but it's set in a more modern day time.  I do like it so far, but I find Dr. Who to be much more exciting and entertaining.  Torchwood is a bit more dark in their story lines, a bit more dramatic.

OK, I just watched the last ep of Dr Who (season 2). Without spoiling it too much for me 'cause I'm still waiting to see it here in the US, do Rose & Mickey show up in Torchwood? There was a reference to Mickey going to work for the Torchwood project. I guess I'm just stil broken up over losing Rose in Dr Who. I think she was the comapnion most emotionally attached to the doctor.

I've seen the first 6 eps so far of Torchwood and have not seen Mickey at all.  I don't think Rose was going to have anything to do with it.  It was an emotional ending when Rose and the Doctor split, rather bittersweet.  There is a Dr. Who Christmas episode, I could send that to you when I get it, and I'm not sure, but we may get a glimpse of the new companion.

Micky was in the other Universe of Torchwood, so that's why you will not see him in this series.

WOW I've just seen the last two Torchwoods and did it have me on the edge of my chair, YES.    It's very sad at the end.

Oh Angel are you going enjoy is when Plif sends you the rest, just have your kleenex ready.


I can't wait for the new series of Dr Who to start.  Some where in time we might get to see Jack you know.  That's just a little teaser.

I watched it tonight as well, and I'm afraid that I must admit... at the end I released a fangirl squeal. I'm so pathetic. I'm not giving anything away though! :c030a: I really enjoyed the series, it was darker, yes... but I feel they made Torchwood its own thing even while it remained a Doctor Who spin-off. There was talk awhile back that Captain Jack would make an appearance in the next series of Doctor Who (it was in the magazine I believe), and they also said at the end of Torchwood tonight that there would be a series two in the fall... blank tapes at the ready!! Summer of Who, Fall of Captain Jack... mmmmm... nice... Why oh why don't I have a DVD recorder... oh yeah, cause they cost too much LOL *sighs*

Didn't think it was much of a surprise if it was in the official magazine. Whatever, I don't need to talk about it here.

What Magazine do you mean?  In anycase I don't magazines, papers.  I don't even buy tv programme listings, as most tv crap.  I just look it up on internet when I remember.

I think the last scifi mag I brought which was ages ago now, had an article about Lexx in.

Doctor Who Magazine, they did an interview with Russel T Davis awhile back when people were asking if Captain Jack would appear in the next series (the one we just had in the spring over here). I want the Captain in both all the time, just because I'm selfish that way. I've missed the last few months of mags, but I have a pretty good collection of them going, when Joe doesn't decide they are better suited for making paper dolls (or paper Daleks for them to run in terror from), so perhaps I inadvertently know more than others on the board might, hence why I should just whistle innocently and say nothing, except perhaps that Jack needs to take his shirt off more, and Owen needs to leave his on ;)

AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGH  I'M HOOKED ! I've been watching the reruns of the first season on BBC America and I like it better than Dr. Who, although I DID catch the Dr. Who ep where they show how the Torchwood institute was started..by Queen Victoria, no less !! Very nice. I'm definitely going to check this show out from now on. :bounce_pinka:

Ok, we're only up to Ep4 in Season One over here, while you guys in the UK await a new season to start in December, so I guess we can do reviews here:

Cyberwoman:

LOVED it. It was old-school Dr. Who material, the Cyberman had destroyed the old Torchwood and Lisa, one of the crew there, got assimilated into being 'upgraded' into a half-cyberman, but unfortunately for her, the upgrade hadn't been completed. Her boyfriend, Ianto, (some thought to be a love interest of Jack's) flipped out when the old Torchwood was destroyed and and hid her in the basement storage room of the new Institute, unbenownst to Jack and the new crew.

When an experiment to 'regress' her back to human fails, and Lisa kills the scientist smuggled into the building by Ianto to help her, all hell breaks loose.

Ianto tries to prevent Jack and crew from destroying Lisa, and is so far into denial that he doesn't understand that she's completely lost to this cyberman transformation. He and Jack have a huge altercation and tons of stuff gets destroyed in the Institute, but the Pterodactyl pet they have helps a bit in combating the Cyberwoman. Some people didn't like the 'other sitde' of Jack being shown, but hey, it's a crisis situation.

Lots of action, gory beyond belief, (loved it) and some delicious snogging by all involved..(except Tosh) :)

SPOILERS !!!!!! Review of 'Small Worlds'.

*

 I don't know how many of you are watching this series in the US, the lucky Brits have had this show since last year and are anxiously awaiting the debut of Season 2 in December. I hope someone can tape it for us...heh.


The 4th ep, Small Worlds is true British-themed storytelling, complete with a mythical background in contrast with the modern-day Alien hunters. It's somewhat of a departure on the series theme, because it delves more into the paranormal than the Scifi element, but it's charming and disturbing all the same.

Guest star Eve Pearce, better known for her 'Coronation Street' roles, plays the part of Estelle, an elderly woman who is obsessed with the legends of woodland fairies (and yes, I know all of you people with minds in the gutter are just DYING to make some comment regarding Capt Jack and fairies, etc,) trust me, been there done that.

Anyway, the subject ofwoodland creatures is very dear to the heart of many Brits, (or Welsh as the case may be), because it's a big part of folklore for the entire region and goes back thousands of years. Estelle is determined to get pics of the flighty little devils (ah yes) and succeeds in capturing a little bit of them on film. In the meantime, a young girl of about 8 or 9 is being subjected to all kinds of harrassment at school, home (from her resentful stepfather) and a local  pedophile ( I said it was disturbing) who tries to get her into his car while walking home from school. She's been cavorting with the fairies in the woods, instead of more contemporary pursuits like Halo and PS3 or hanging out with other girls her age. She spends so much time there, her distracted mother becomes worried (but not enough to see what's happening under her own roof) and it drives the little girl even further from her family. The Fairies are explained (by Jack, who visits Estelle during one of her lectures with Gwen,) that they are ancient creatures from the earth and capable of not only mishcief by world-wide catastrophes if thwarted in their little games.

The people that are bothering the little girl are summarily dispatched in an unusal way. They're smothered with tons of rose petals down their throats. Now Jack knows about this because in his previous life in the army in 1909, his troop train was full of men, and were smothered in revenge the same way, because of an incident where a group of soldiers had run over a little girl while driving drunk. Apparently, the girl (both of them) are Chosen Ones, and destined to join the ranks of the Fairies in spite of what anyone else wants. Needless to say, they wreak havoc on the local population until Jack has to turn the young girl over to them (and she really WANTS to go) much to the great outrage of the girls mother and the crew of Torchwood. He only does it because it was either that or the world would become a ball of ice, and they promised she'd come to no  harm. Not a fluffy ending, by any means. (and they do keep thier promise)

But the big shocker is that Estelle, who gets killed by association, was actually either married or bonded to Jack in the 40's when she was a young girl, but she has no idea that it's him, come back to viist. Gwen of course can't keep her nose out of it and  gets a tearful confession from Jack that Estelle had been a great love of his in the past, and that Estelle had always thought he was the original Jack's son.

Very heartwrenching episode for the mother, but she deserved it, since she allowed her boyfriend to smack the little girl around and ignored her most of the time, to be more involved with her abusive boyfriend.

Interesting episode, not everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoyed it and they actually showed some real photographs that were taken decades ago by Fairy hunters in the UK. Great stuff and we get to see Jack do a little suffering.

I watched the ep last night with the necklace. OOH LALA!My favorite quote was when Tosh was standing on the street corner listening to what everyone was thinkking as they went by. I just love the woman who thought "6 cigarettes today and all of them post coitus bliss":c030a:
BTW I'm not sure which would be more disturbing; Tosh sleeping with a woman or sleeping with an alien:shock:

Hey I'm sure the guys didn't complain, that's the second time we've seen some F/F action, they had Gwen snogging the alien-infected girl Carys in 'Day One'...

Funniest line in that ep was Owen watching them on the security cameras going 'Happy birthday to me....let me just do a little recording..." and Jack and Owen drooling as they dawdled going down there to interfere, heh.

Oh yeah, been there, it keeps freezing my browser so I visit the BBCAmerica site instead.

Oh for all you 'Torchies' or 'Woodies' out there, I'm currently ripping audio from all the episodes for computer prompts and other stuff. If you have a favorite quote from Torchwood that you want the mp3 for, let me know and I"ll snatch it for you.

I had 2 faves in that video. One was where John was cracking up so hard he lapsed back into his Scottish accent and the other one was where he and Burn were headbanging ala 'Bohemian Rhapsody' in the SUV. Also Eve Myles trying to make the metal 'RizenMitten' give the cameraman the 'finger'...

These people have NO shame...and god bless them for it.

Not to worry, I snagged the video as an FLV file, and can also switch it to an AVI. I made some screen caps of it and will rip the audio as well. DFG, if you have a Flash player, I can send you the file.

I saw it months ago when Plif sent me the disc from Ireland. That ep rocked and kicked ass and made me all the more curious about what he and the Doctor will be up to. It was a very fitting end. Thanks for uploading that interview Maya, I'm going to snatch it!

Ok, I have admittedlyl STOLEN all thlis from Girl over at the Scifi board, but she posts at the BBCA board anyway:

MAJOR SPOILERS !

So since there's already been some stuff around here about series 2, I figured I'd post the bulk of the spoilers I've got to date. Series 2 is looking more and more brilliant. I can't wait until January. Remember I am not saying all of this will happen. This is just a collection of little bits of official, non-official, writer and actor information I've received. And if anyone has any info to add please feel free.

Confirmed guest appearances: James Marsters, Alan Dale, Richard Briers, Nikki Amuka-Bird, and the kid who will play 'Young Adam'- I can't, for the life of me, remember his name or find the interview article with the info.

Episode List (working titles):
Episode 1 "Separation Anxiety" now renamed as KISS KISS BANG BANG
Written by Chris Chibnall; Directed by Ashley Way
Jack returns! Initially the team is upset with him for leaving. A new character, Captain John played by James Marsters, a rogue time agent and past lover of Jack's arrives at Torchwood 3. It seems like he will by the viewers 'eyes' for this episode; viewing the team as very sexy. Captain John encourages Jack to return to his old ways and also attempts harming other team members. Jack's clash with Captain John is going to be violent and sexy, possibly involving a drunken fight; there will be snogging. According to James Marsters, it will be very titillating. Ianto?s infamous stopwatch returns to play an important role.

Episode 2 "Sleeper"
Written by James Moran; Directed by Colin Teague
A man from WWI falls through the Rift, but the team have to send him back to his own time due to the opened rift, thus putting his life at risk. This will also be a tragic love story as Tosh will fall for the lost soldier. Nikki Amuka-Bird is said to appear in this episode.

Episode 3 "To the Last Man"
Written by Helen Raynor; Directed by Andy Goddard
No real details about this episode yet.

Episode 4 "Another Working Day"
Written by Catherine Tregenna; Directed by Colin Teague
The Torchwood team will possibly be investigating a terrorist cell.

Episode 5 (originally episode 6) "Reset" (1 of 3)
Written by JC Wilsher; Directed by Ashley Way
Two members of the team, specifically Owen and another will experience an alternate reality. They see how their lives could have been had they taken different paths. Martha Jones is called upon by Jack. Still not sure exactly how much of this episode she will be in, or how it will work if episode 6 doesn't have Martha in it at all, since she will return for episodes 7 and 8.

Episode 6 (originally episode 5) "Adam"
Written by Matt Jones; Directed by Andy Goddard
Adam is a childhood friend of Jack's who has telepathic abilities. Also, a memory thief uncovers secrets about each member of the team. This seems to be an episode about Jack's past. We see flashbacks to the 51st Century, Jack's youth, his family (his father's death), and his homeland. If we see Jack's brother, it's possible he may return in another episode.

Episode 7 "Death comes to Torchwood" (2 of 3)
Written by Joseph Lidster; Directed by Andy Goddard
Torchwood is investigating a series of mysterious deaths and Jack has called in Martha Jones to help. Martha's arrival will initially cause tension within the team. Her closeness to Jack will cause jealousy for Ianto and possibly Gwen. She will spend much of her time with Jack and Owen. Martha will have a feisty relationship with Owen, but not a sexual relationship. A Martha episode involves the 'Pharm,' an alien species.

Episode 8 "Day in the Death Of" (3 of 3)
Written by Catherine Tregenna; Directed by Andy Goddard
Martha's help is needed when something life changing happens to a member of the team, almost certainly Gwen or Owen. The possible reasons are Owen's transforming into an alien (possibly a Weevil), or Gwen is pregnant with an alien baby.

Episode 9 "Wedding"
A wedding takes place between Gwen and Rhys, but all does not go according to plan. Gwen wakes to find that she's been impregnated by a half alien baby. If the Gwen pregnancy story is true, it's been said Martha has to help Gwen keep the pregnancy a secret from Rhys.

Episode 10 "From out of the Rain"
No real details about this episode yet.

Episode 11 "Adrift"
No real details about this episode yet.

Episode 12 "Prequel"
Written by PJ Hammond
'Black and white' people begin appearing from moving films of the 1920's. This episode is said to be terrifying.

Episode 13 "Spaceship Under Bay"
The finale and long awaited return of Captain John played by James Marsters, from episode 1 "Separation Anxiety." During this episode Jack is subjected to a violent attack. Depending on the end of this episode, Jack's appearance in series 4 of Doctor Who may be explained (i.e. does he leave Torchwood like the end of series 1, or is his appearance in Doctor Who series 4 a different version of Jack).

Here are some other spoilers that are fairly general, but you can probably fit them in somewhere:
1. The team gets closer during the new series and really starts working together as a team more than in series 1.
2. There is going to be a lot of alien influence in this series.
3. Weevils will appear in several episodes, and the species will be further explored; possibly in relation to Owen, specifically continuing from "Combat."
4. Jack and Ianto's relationship is developed. This may or may not be just a friendly relationship. JB has said it is possible Jack settles down with a man in series 2, but which man is still a mystery.
5. Jack and Gwen's relationship is a very important part of series 2; the romantic relationship looks less likely than originally hinted at by EM. JB has basically denied a Jack/Gwen romantic relationship in series 2 and focused more on the developing relationship between Jack and Ianto, plus Gwen will be (attempting) to marry Rhys.
6. Ianto and Owen may embark on new relationships outside of Torchwood. Ianto's is supposedly with a female character and Owen's is a male character.
7. U.N.I.T will be involved in an episode, specifically a scene with Tosh. Possibly related is a scene with Owen and Tosh, holding a young boy, running from a building. After they are outside Owen kisses Tosh and runs back inside. I think this might be from episode 3 "To the Last Man." This might also mean a possible relationship is building between Tosh and Owen.
8. There is a scene in one episode where Ianto seems to aid Jack during a Weevil attack. This scene seems likely to be part of the alternate paths/"Reset" or memory thief/"Adam" episode.
9. In one episode, Gwen may show Rhys where she works.
10. There was a semi-dispelled rumor of Gwen falling through the Rift back in time to meet an earlier/bad version of Jack. Supposedly she'd be gone a few episodes, possibly those where Martha arrives, but I don't believe this idea at all as she's in the Martha episodes. Sounds fun though.
11. Owen will experience a traumatic event during the middle of the series, most certainly during one of Martha's episodes.
12. Ianto is more involved and important we learn more about his past; he's not just making the coffee. There may be more development of Ianto and Tosh's friendship.
13. Richard Briers will be playing Parker, a reclusive 90 year old millionaire who facing death and is the keeper of alien secrets, later in the series. My guess is episode 12 "Prequel" as he said the script scared him.

Bonus info:
1. All the main actors are set to return for a third series if it is confirmed.
2. James Marsters will be returning in the future as Captain John so long as the show goes into production.

SQUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEE !! They listened to me !!!

I sent an email to HDNet a couple of months ago and suggested they do a Torchwood Marathon at Christmas because the series would be over!

They wrote back and said they'd consider it ! WELL GUESS WHAT ! They're doing a NEW YEAR'S MARATHON , starting at 1pm EST (check local listings) on Jan 1, thru til 1 am in the morning Jan. 2. If you haven't picked up Hi-Def yet, you have one week to get on the ball to be able to see the whole of Season 1 in Hi-Definition !! Hi Def hookup thru cable usually only runs about $5-10 more a month, (packages notwithstanding) so it's a bargain.

Make sure to catch this marathon, probably the last time they'll show it. YEE HAWWW !!

I can't wait to see it too.  I know exactly what you  mean by if anybody rings they'll be dead meat, so why don't you do what I do and unplug your phone line from the socket, that  way it will ring the other person's end but you will not hear it and there fore not be interupted.  Just remember to put it back in.

I've looked in the bbc listings and sadly there's no mention of Torchwood been shown and the bbc website does not say what date it's going be shown.   So if anybody finds out can you post it, or I'll probably forget and miss it.  And where as I was once able to watch missed episodes in the past, well that website has been taken now:(

Both the new Doctor Who and Torchwood seasons start on Jan. 26 here in the US on BBCAmerica. On BBC2, TW is supposed to start Jan 16th or so and Doctor Who is sometime around the same time. I haven't seen the actual dates, so check on BBC2 site for both times. It HAS to be earlier for the UK because we can't get the new season before y'all...;)

That really sucks Maya that you and I can't start seeing TW at the same time.  That way we can both discuss it without giving major plots away.

It's the same with Heroes, I can't talk to UK fans who have not seen the second series like I have been able to because the  bbc have only just finished showing series one.

If you're in the UK, you can see the 'behind-the-scenes' of the new series first ep, but we in the US can't view it. IF anyone out there can grab it, that would be amazing.

Ther's a new Press trailer up at the TW BBC site, and new pics from the series, but for those of us in the US that can't see that, you can find it here at Freema's site:

Great interview with Naoko and John.

Thanks Angel, your life saver.  I've watched them all and I don't mind that they are in 7 different parts, as long as I got to see it as a complete episode and not loads of different trailers.  I did a you tube search for Torchwood too.  Thanks a lot:bounce_pinka:

I really laughed at the bit the beginning when the old lady saw the fish man, her face said it all and especially what she said about Torchwood, lol.

Wasn't it hysterical?!!  There was so much sexual innuendo, right up my alley.  James Marsters really takes the cake in this ep!

Oh yea James Masters covered in cake would be nice. I can't get used to him normal color hair. I miss the bleached blond hair he had in Buffy/Angel.

I read somewhere that he used to put loads of sweetener in his dye as it burn like hell without it.

My review of the CD, 'Another Side' got added to the front page for the CD on Amazon.co.uk. Look for the review called 'John Barrowman Delivers the new Modern Classics'... Second from the top. I'm stoked !!

Core that's admazing write up Maya. I think it's really helpful to any John Barrowman fan.

Now back to torchwood.

I finally got to see the rest of it on you tube. Sleepers very interesting episode. I don't want give the plot away for those who have yet to see it but I would say this show is more then mere science fiction. It has sole and Gwen her character is so caring.

As for Ep 2...

I have to be honest, it didn't blow my skirt up. Maybe it was because the first ep was such a hard act to follow...and I couldn't hear half of the little comments Ianto made in reference to Jack..he just mumbled them.

I liked episode 2, sleepers. Granted, it wasn't as good as the first ep, and not all eps will be as good as some, but I liked the 'human' aspect of this one. Gwen did a great job with Beth the 'alien'.

Tonight's episode Meat. It was ok. The story line got dragged out a bit. The end really up set me. I think who ever wrote it was trying make reference to whaling.

Rhys played by Kai Owen got a bigger part in this episode.

I knew one could watch the episodes on the bbc website but they would not play in Firefox. I found out they do play in IE. I watched also various Making of from all the episodes of this series. Very interesting.

So if I get busy and forget again to watch them in future on tv, I know where to go.

I just watched Meat, how sad for the poor animal, but Owen did do it as a mercy killing.  Much more dramatic in this ep with Reese's and Gwen's relationship.  With the way Jack watches her, it almost seems like he has feelings for her.  They also show a small preview of the next ep, and the person Grey is Jack's brother that he lost long ago, which is what I suspected.

Yeah, there's been alot of controversy about these 'moments' with Gwen. Either they're trying to give the impression that Jack can't make up his mind between Ianto and Gwen or that he's not sure what he feels at all. They're still developing the Ianto relationship in a major way, so that it's going to be very evident in the future eps, where Jack's feelings lie. In the meantime all the diversion with this nonsense is pissing people off, because they know that it's leading nowhere.

That theory would actually explain the looks he's been giving her, but it doesn't quite explain why he seemed pissed in the past ep when she told him she was engaged to Reese.  His reaction was more of a jealous man, like why would she choose her fiance over him.

I think Jack is carrying a torch for Gwen, just by the way he is more protective of her feelings than he is of the other team members.

I forgot to add next's week episode looks a bit gross by the second trailer I've seen.   Martha Jones is in it too.

For those of you that haven't seen 'Adam' and 'Reset' yet, (they were both shown on BBC2 on the same night) here's a link to Youtube where someone has both eps uploaded. Make sure to catch it soon as they won't be up long. They'll show up o titles as 'previews' but they're the whole ep in serial form.

I've seen next weeks TW. Alien comes to mind in episode. Martha Jones was good in it but a torchwood team member gets shot.

I'm wondering if that character has been taken out to make room for Martha or they the actor wanted out of the show.

So Captain Jack finally meets Reese. In that scene towards the end where they are getting into the back of the truck and Reese kisses Gwen & tells her he loves her, Jack is next to get into the truck, the point where Jack stops & looks at Reese, I almost thought Jack was going to ask Reese if he could have a kiss too. LOL

Just finished watching the latest Torchwood ep, 'Dead Man Walking'.  Owen is brought back to life with a different resurrection glove, and all death breaks loose.  It was a great ep!

Thank you for pointing it out Ketana.  I thought that link was for Reset.  I just watched Deadman Walking.  It was really creepy but I really enjoyed it and can't wait to see the next one.

Over here the  bbc show two episodes on Wednesday evening.  One on terrestial tv and one on digital.  Because some people still only have analog tv.  It gets a bit confusing sometimes, because if you see the next one in advance, you think oh I don't have to watch it next week, but then there's the extra one.  All it a bit.

Channel 4 also do this with Desprate Housewifes.

So many shows are in re-runs because of the writer's strike over here. It's good to see something I'm interested in the interim. In my opinion this season of Torchwood is much better than the last. Can't wait until Season 4 of Dr. Who starts.

I've just watch Day in the Death. This is a really episode. I find some of it really funny for some odd reason but some of it was also very sad, and slightly depressing regarding suicide bit.

I see Sarah Jane is going be in the next episode. That will be interesting.

I just finished watching Day in the Death, thanks for the links DFG.  It was a very sad episode, yet it also gave some hope.  It was a much more dramatic role for Owen and I think it really helped us to understand his character better, he's really coming more into his own this season.  The next episode looks great!  Too bad there's only 5 eps left to the season, it's gone way too fast.

Oh great I'm glad those links worked for you.

You know I really used to hate Owen because he's so arrogant but this episode you really got to know him and I think he's a team member one can't do without.

I don't know if this is true but I read on some ones Torchwood blog that Owen's character was not very popular and they were thinking of killing him off.

Five more episodes hay, well lets hope when that finishes the new Dr Who series will start and fill the gap.

I already watched it. I think it's quite amusing bad things do go wrong at wedding but this well it's something different, lol.

Oh btw I got my actress wrong, it was not Elisabeth Sladen who I thought was in this episode but the actress Nerys Hughes who's claim to frame is The Liver Birds and Are you been served.

Don't ask me why but I seem to get these actress confused.

Fragments was really really good!  What I liked about this episode is the flashback of their lives before they joined Torchwood, basically it shows what led up to them joining the team Jack put together.  This season has been alot more about the personal lives of the team, a more in-depth view of their lives and what makes them who they are.  All in all I really liked this ep, and of course the teaser into the season two finale looked completely out of this world!

John played the gay director to the hilt.  The scene with him arguing with the actress about tits, tits, tits was hysterical.  I haven't seen the Torchwood Exit Wound ep loaded onto youtube yet, maybe it'll be up this weekend.  I really like Hotel Babylon, just wish I had more cable so I could see it regularly.

Don't know yet for sure, it is the season last, but with some cast not coming back and the main writer gone who knows what's happening.  Nobody really knows what's going on yet.  I really hope they have a season 3 and that John Barrowman comes back!

At first is seems as if James Marster's character is the bad guy - John Hart - as he kills Jack then ties him up, shocks him, then sets explosions to go off over the city.  After all that happens, he transports Jack back to Cardiff 27 A. D.  And that's where we see the true person behind it.  Jack's brother Grey had a molecular bomb around John's wrist, so he had to do what Grey wanted or else he'd go boom.  He didn't want to do these things to Jack, but he also wanted to save his own ass as well.  Well the reunion between brothers ends up with Grey knifing Jack, he is full of hatred that Jack left him when they were children and their world was being attacked by those alien creatures.  It turns out the creatures kidnapped Grey, and tortured him for many years, so his resentment and hatred of his brother Jack grew and grew over the years until that's all that he knew and that's all that was left in his heart.  He had Jack buried alive and had John put the dirt over him, but before that happened John threw a ring down in to the grave that lets off a transmission, Jack ended up being buried alive for 2000 years until the people from Torchwood 1901 discovered an odd signal and went to investigate and unbury Jack, he told them who he was and about the future and that they had to cryo-freeze him for 108 years so he could wake up in the future to help his comrades.  It was too late for Tosh though, Grey shot her in the stomach while she was trying to help Owen save a nuclear power plant from going into melt-down.  She crawled bleeding and dying to her hand held instrument panel and started talking Owen through it, but a power surge ended up shutting down the plant much earlier before Owen could get out, so as everything vented into the room Owen was in to contain it, Owen died as well.  Jack managed to stop his brother Grey and put him in cryo-freeze.  It was quite a dramatic and tear-jerker episode, and in addition to Kiss Kiss bang bang, the best one of the season.

I hope there is a Torchwood season 3 and that it'll be as good as this past season was.

There are 5 new ep isodes of Torchwood out in Book form, that run through Season 2, 2 of them are in audio book form and the others are in hardback. The last episode has only the 3 surviving members of TW in the book.

The titles are:

Something in the Water, Twilight Streets, Trace Memory, (book form) and in audio;

HIdden (read by Naoko) and Everyone says Hello (read by Burn Gorman).

There are 3 previous TW books out that run thru S1, and they are:

Border Princes: Read by Eve Myles, Slow Decay, read by Burn Gorman and Another Life read by John Barrowman. They're also available in a hardback form.

I guess that's supposed to hold us over until S3, where John B says it will be VERY different. Rumour is that they're going to lose all the sex and homosexual content (DAMN) and make it more 'family friendly' for the Doctor Who fans, so they can milk the merchandising and property rights.

3 New books planned for S3 are:

Skypoint, Pack Animals and Almost Perfect. (these are out Nov.08 )

ONLY 5 episodes...a sort of mini-series...Producer Russel T Davies is out and Julie is still in, along with the BBC. Supposedly Eve and Gareth stay, but they add new cast members, as Temps..(?)...Have no idea WTF they're thinking..

Oh, shooting starts in August of this year for a release next year some time..(watch for the series to just blow away in the dust now)...

It's a good thing John is keeping himself busy doing West End theater...

Well Russel T Davis is quiting as Producer of Dr Who and Steven Moffett is taking over. He's the one that wrote this week's episode amongest others.

So guess they've not got anyone to replace RD yet.

Shit why can't they make a full season episodes. I bet the fans will be up in arms about it.

Ok, here's Julie Gardner's press release on S3 for Torchwood...*sigh*...

From the bbc Torchwood website : http://www.bbb.co.uk/torchwood

(transcribed for those outside the UK who will not be able to view the
website.)

Julie Gardner has confirmed that a third series of Torchwood has been
commissioned and that it will be unlike anything we have seen before!

Not only will the series air on BBC One, Torchwood will have a brand new format.
The series will consist of just one continuous story, delivered over 5
consecutive nights.

That's not the only thing that will be new about the series - Torchwood will
have a brand new producer, Peter Bennett, who has previously worked on Torchwood
and on Doctor Who as well as 'The Mummy', 'A View to a Kill' and 'Indiana Jones
and the Temple of Doom'. Euros Lyn will also join the team as Director. Euros
has directed several Doctor Who episodes including the 'Silence in the Library /
Forest of the Dead' two-part story from the current series.

And just to add to the excitement, the show will boast some new arrivals in the
cast as well...

Julie Gardner says that she and Russell T Davies "are thrilled to be bringing
Torchwood back for a third series. The new series promises to be a gripping and
surprising TV event and we're certain the audience will love the team's
exciting, roller-coaster adventures."

Production on the new series will start in August


So there it is guys, a 5 episode minis-series, with new cast members and probably no Doctor Who crossover as promised...gah.

Yeah it sucks that it's not going to be a whole series season.  Dr. Who is only going to be 4 special eps for 2009 and not coming back as a regular series til 2010.  Makes me wonder if there won't be a regular series of Torchwood til then too.

Nope, not a writers's strike it has to do with how much money the BBC has to use for their shows. Right now they have one crew doing all the major shows, which isnt even close enough. Over at the Scifi.com Doctor Who thread, someone gave a detailed explanation as to the inner workings of the BBC and how they produce shows, since they don't accept advertising.

They have a page up at John's own website that has pics of him visiting CERN. Reallly great stuff, considering they tied in the Collider project with the new Torchwood radio play that just came out.

Cool Thanks for posting those photos.

I don't suppose you've got the original theme tune to Torchwood?

crappy itunes has it but 1 you have to d/l the whole cd and I don't want the whole cd and 2 they only have the newer version.

The first episode in the mini series rocked! So how does Jack recover from being blown to bits? It was really left as a cliffhanger. Just when you think they may have another team member, you find out he's really a spy to infiltrate the group, then the kill order goes out on Jack and the Doctor guy shoots him, and he ends up getting show and killed anyways. It is very creepy with all the children stopping and saying the same thing in unison. Hopefully we'll find out more from the Tim/Clem characacter since he escaped the first time the aliens came. Can't wait for more!

Last night was a really good episode, it was very creepy how Jack put himself back together and a good feeling when the team rescued him out of the conrete and they were back together again. BBC America blurred out his naked ass, so we didn't get to see the whole package.....too bad. He had a blast doing the nudity scene, you could tell during the little extra look inside the filming of it at the end.

Whoah, what a twist to find out that Jack handed over the children back in 1965. Now the alien wants 10% of the worlds children, big question is why? And if the alien can't breathe our atmosphere, then what kind of threat are they? Unless they can blow up planet earth from space.

Just finished watching episode 4, and I knew from DFG a spoiler about Ianto getting killed off.  It was kind of anti-climatic and disappointing at how he did it.  I would rather have liked to have seen a more blaze of glory.  I really wonder how it's going to end and how they are going to stop the aliens from taking all the children.  All in all I really like the series so far.

Tonight's episode was great! Finally someone thought to ask, "Why do they want the children?" So the aliens could get high. So basically the Earth would have turned into a fresh field of mary jane for the 456, and they could come back whenever they wanted and take more and more. Overall the series was very well done, just didn't like the way they had Ianto die, not very heroic. I was almost crying along with Gwen at the end when she was saying goodbye to Jack. Will there be a season four? Basically it's up to the BBC UK to pick up the series and Russell T. Davies said he'd be more than happy to come back and write the series again, and Eve Myles and John Barrowman are more than willing to play the characters again. So cross your fingers for a seasoin four!

I'm really glad you enjoyed it. Did you not find it a bit creepy regarding getting high on the children?

And what about seeing that poor 1965 child with all those tubes sticking out of it into the Aliens? And it hadn't even aged. That really cheeped me out.

Yeah lets hope they will make another series but where do they go from here, as they've killed most of the good cast off and the actress that plays Martha Jones is off doing another tv series which is an English version of one of your shows, can't remember what it is called now. It's a law one.

Pure science fiction regarding the contact lens that can record every thing but what a cool idea hay. Makes me think of the two way mirror idea.

We hope this turns out to be true!!

We reported earlier this year that FOX was looking to re-make the popular UK sci-fi series Torchwood for American audiences, and almost immediately people began to speculate whether or not the network would change one of the main character's sexual preference!!

Openly gay Scottish actor John Barrowman portrayed Captain Jack Harkness in the UK version, and has admitted he would LOVE to bring the character to American audiences, but only if the character continues hooking up with dudes!!

Barrowman says:

"Julie has said, as has Russell, that there will be no Torchwood without John Barrowman as Capt. Jack… If I am asked to do Torchwood again, I will do it at the drop of a hat - whether it's in America or back in Britain or if it's for a film. I absolutely love Capt. Jack. The last thing I would want would be for Jack to become this heterosexual, straight hero. He's an omnisexual guy. He likes men, women, aliens, whatever. I think we should continue going down that route."

We sincerely hope that US producers honor the integrity of the original and agree to those terms! Do we really need ANOTHER womanizing, super hetero scoundrel type??

This is news to me.  I hope for Torchwood to stay been made in the UK because the US make it they will change a lot of it.  I know what happened to the Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy movie, it was awful.  I second that, keep Jack as he is, a lover of of things living, whether it be human or alien.

Anyway in case you haven't seen it yet: http://www.bbc.co.uk/torchwood/torchwood_new_series/
 
Fox is out (/cheer), Starz Entertainment is in. Looks promising. From this and a few comments by JB and RTD it seems like they will still have a fair bit of content based in Wales, along with the international stuff.

I wrote off an email to the BBC begging them to bring back Ianto, before I realised that a million tragic fangirls before me have done the same thing.. oops. :shock:

Well if the news of a US version of Torchwood is true, then JB better make sure he has a great entertainment lawyer, because US studios are notorious for bastardizing original ideas to fit some sort of formula aimed at a certain demographic, and I'd not hold my breath about them letting him continue to be 'omnisexual', they'll find a way to make him have only hetero sex with someone, even if it's just the receptionist..

I'm certainly not going to hide and watch for that to happen.

Wow! I can't believe they committed to seven years! The show could bomb and be cancelled, that's ambitious to sign on for that long. I can't wait to see the new version, guess I'll have to keep the starz channel, I was going to get rid of HBO and Starz for awhile, maybe I'll keep it for now.

Even though he was just the "butler", Ianto was my favorite character because when he developed feelings for Captain Jack he didn't run from it. He went for it and was like, "I'm not gay, I just happen to love this particular man." That's true love, I say, to love someone beyond fear, or judgement from society, or your own orientation even! He just fell in love with the person. And then they killed him! Vexing, I tell you. Very vexing.

Jack and Ianto were "fuck buddies" for quite a while before they developed feelings for each other. Jack really loved Gwen, he almost told her but she interrupted him to say she was engaged.

I meant that is was love for Ianto, not for Jack.

I ordered Starz just so I could watch the series, I like it so far, nice to John Barrowman back in action as Captain Jack.

Well I've just watched Mircle Day. I was not aware it had started yet, lol.

It's very good and can't wait to see episode two. Looks like Jack will get some man action as I saw that in the trailer.

I don't want to give out too much of a spoiler for the next ep, but John B. does a good dying impression.  The bad woman at the end is freaky after what happens to her.

The burnt man on the table in the hospital was awful. I nearly threw up and that is mostly CGI. Better then Pam peeling face in TB.

I've seen a trailer for the next episode. It's been shown but becasue I don't buy tv magazines I don't know when they are on. I did go to the bbc website but for some odd reason they are only showing the first episode when they have already board cast the second episode. Dah......

John B on G4 Comic Con today, looking amazing in ripped jeans and a Star Wars t-shirt, said he spent HOURS buying about  $400 worth of t-shirts and  action figures, glad to see that a guy that good looking is still a geek at heart.

LOL, he's just a fan like everybody else. There was a scene in this last ep that I've never seen the old BBC version go that far on!

I wonder if whomever is doing this is so they can really kill Jack because it made him mortal and also so because people could take their drugs, kind of a two edge sword, kill two birds with one stone sorta thing?

I don't think Jack will die. Remember in David Tennanats Dr Who they said Jack was the face of boe.

Episode 4 you'll really get to known who is doing this and I don't wish to give anything else away. Hurry up Thursday and come.

By the way what day do they boardcast it in USA?

Now the governments have 'categorized' the people and are burning the category ones. I hope Gwen can get her Dad out of there!

I know, looks like Jack is a goner, so I wonder how he's going to squeak through this one. I hope they can figure out out to save the world from the 'miracle'.

It's at times like this I wish I had a time machine and could fast forward to watch the next two episodes and also the remaining episode of TB. I hate waiting for the ending.

It's nice to see that Jack survived it. Very sad when they came and took Gwen's Dad away. I hope they can get the 'miracle' solved and ended before anything happens to him.

Well I've seen the final episode and from it, it looks like the miracle story is going to continue sometime in the future of Torchwood series. There's no news on the bbc website about another series, so I'll have to look esle where when I get time.

It was sad to see Esther killed in the end, I really liked her character. Now Rex is indestructible like Jack, and he didn't look to happy about it. I think it's going to continue, we'll just have to keep our eyes open to see if Starz renews it.

Okay, I know it's a bit late, but I've just watched season 4 and... no. Just... no. They killed Ianto. They killed Owen. They killed Toshiko. And Rex gets to live. And be like Jack, no less. Again, no.

For me, the only redeeming things about this season were the love scenes between Jack and Angelo. And not just because they were hot, but because they were sweet. It was so nice to see gay men portrayed as feeling people instead of just sex machines.

I love Jack and Gwen and Rhys. (Didn't like Gwen's hair, though. I miss the shag cut with the fringe. This new hair made her look a bit frumpy and she is not frumpy). But the rest of the cast were bleh. I mean, I didn't even care when Esther died. It was just like, huh, oh well.

I really wanted to like it, but... yeah. There it is.

I miss Ianto.

There were two major problems with this Show. First, it ended to soon. Health problems with the creators partner or something like that.

Secondly, Jack, a real cutie, started to take a back seat to all decisions and at times it it was the Gwen show.
Torchwood became a spin-off of Dr Who because of the popularity of the Captain Jack Harkness character. What do you guys think ?

Yes, it's the 10 episode Mircacle Day that Starz had on a couple of years ago. I saw it on there, but I might rewatch it again. I was hoping they'd do more, but they've killed off all of the original cast except for Jack and Gwen.

The BBC seams to be running more of this series, as of late.
There is such a demand for torchwood in The UK. That maybe, they will get Russell T. Davies to write some more episodes. When he is over his crises.
